Literacy:

Mrs Maiden's Literacy Group:

Today, you will be finishing your retell of Fantastic Mr Fox by writing the ending.

The ending should include:

• Mr Fox, the small fox and badger returning home.
• The feast.
• The farmers still waiting outside the hole.

To make this exciting for the reader, you could:

• Include exciting, descriptive vocabulary.
• Include some speech between characters, punctuated correctly.
• Use fronted adverbials at the start of sentences that show where, when and how. E.g.

In the deep, damp hole, …

One gloomy evening, …

Sneakily, …

• The characters’ thoughts and feelings (make them exciting, not ‘happy’ or ‘sad’)

Mrs Worrallo’s Literacy Group:

This week we are going to focus on the different characters in Fantastic Mr Fox and describe them!

Each day we are going to describe a different character. On Friday we are going to compare two of them!

Tuesday – Describe Badger.

Wednesday – Describe Mrs Fox.

Thursday – Describe Bunce.

Friday – Compare Mr Fox and Badger.

Today, we are going to compare two characters. This means that we say what is the same about them and what is different about them.

Now open up the Blue Group Activity. We are going to draw a picture of Mr Fox and Badger.  Then we are going to write:

A) One thing that is the same about them.

B) One thing that is different about them.
